King Butterly Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm A tremendous privilege to have this painting going to a young collector to be included in her private gallery. Fabulous Border Collie, calf screaming, walk up the hills of Eastford Estates. The Nature Reserve recovering after being ravaged in the fires. Amongst the pioneer plants, the foundations of homes raised to the ground, a sobering reminder of the trauma. Ticks,

Meerskat Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm 'Nyathi' Series, the theme for my 30 paintings, in 30 days my challenge. Inspired by the photo's from Addo, the peace and tranquility of being in the bush. To increase the dramatic effect of the small 20cmx20cm canvases, I worked with a limited palette of white and black (dark grey mixture of Ultramarine blue and Burnt Umber).   A minimalistic approach, the

'Fireflies' 24cmx36cm Acrylic on 300 gram paper Blossoms on the tree outside the luxurious room at Nyati. Fireflies and stars. The distance hoot of owls. The melody of the Night Jar. Silence. The hills, distance shadows. The great elephants, at one with the dark. Sound. A scene brutalized in cities, and even in our quiet town of Knysna. Here, where nature rules, sound is everything. Great molars

'Kaleidoscope' Acrylic and Recycled Water Bottle Butterflies on Canvas (Photo credits: Clare Bosman)   The collective noun for butterflies; kaleidoscope, which seemed appropriate for the light reflections off the various facets of the plastic water bottle butterflies.

Oil on canvas, Line Art, painting with my finger painting technique challenging. My latest interpretation using my fingers to form ridges of white paint, creating lines on a white background. Light, the only differentiating factor. Stunning days after the storms, made for picnic’s, braai’s, beach walks, trail runs, forest rides and Border Collie mayhem. Fires at night to push back the winter chill monsters

ArcherOil on canvas 20cmx30cmCommissioned work, alongside the ‘Fly Fisherman’. Fragmented strokes to create a sense of volume, while minimizing detail and focusing on the poise and strength of the archer. Core muscles pounded to mush on the Buffs trail ride. While not technical, still demanding through soft sand and the ride along the railway line section. Spectacular it is, Early sunshine on the breaking

‘Archer’, a companion painting to ‘Fly Fisherman’. I used the same Naples Yellow underpainting and the grey mixture of Cobalt Blue and Burnt Sienna. However, the painting approach and feel for the painting is very different. Beach walk on a stunning, sun-filled day. J9 for Coreta’s Marsala braaied chops, served with a touch of boerie, curried cauliflower, creamed spinach and oodles of green salad. After

My recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas artwork ‘Rhenosterveld’ can be viewed at the ‘Coming Home’ exhibition at the Imibala Gallery in Graaff-Reinet. Clear and cold after the storms for my run up Welbedacht hill. I certainly need calf compression socks to ease into the cooler weather.
